Whoa, that looks dark for Lamy Blue, which is often (unfavorably!) compared to ballpoint ink (though I like it).

Huh.  I think of it is pretty dusky relative to the blues I'm usually partial to.  It has that old-fashioned/faded-over-time look to it, but I do tend to like very saturated colors.  I think in one of my fine Japanese nibs it would be pretty light.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

OH and here is a comparison of Waterman Serenity Blue in two different pens.

I think you gave me a sample of this one! I think it's funny that your full page of blues doesn't have any of the ones I use regularly!  I have one pen inked with Shigure at the moment, but otherwise I have all different blues!  I don't think I have enough pens to flush out your chart, though.

 

And I hope you're just being metaphorical...

Okay, I inked up Shigure and Sankodo!

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct, and valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

I've noticed some of my earlier inks had disappeared.  Last night I did a few new ones.  Rhodia Ice, lined.  Just swabs 'n' scribbles. 'Scuse the bad writing; glass dip pens are tough to control.

Some of these bottles were nearly empty.  How did THAT happen?  😳

The amount of ink in a bottle is inversely proportional to how much you like that ink. ;)

Sooo much eye candy in this thread. Royal and cobalt blues are my jam. I will dip pen all my blues tonight and add on.

Okay....I learned that wrangling a toothpick for scribbles is even more difficult than using glass dip pens.

 

All done on Rhodia Ice.  Monteverde, Chesterfield, and De Atramentis inks.   I forgot to label half of them, and both the Chesterfield Teal and De Atramentis U. S. Constitution look more blue-black than anything else.

These also appear considerably darker than in real life.  😕

Herbin Bleu Nuit in Pelikan EF; I'm underwhelmed. :(

Thanks for the image.  I sort of like the ink, but I have sooo many blue blacks I seldom use it.

Thank you for sharing, this was one of the inks I tried early on. Is a nice performer, but left me cold.
